Clockwise or counterclockwise, the loop around Lake Resia can be cycled. There are a many possibilities for the starting place:
We follow the gravel road to the south, continue around the kite spot - on our left the road and on our right the lake - continue to the dam. When the weather is nice, we have a fantastic view of the Ortler, the highest mountain in South Tyrol at 3,905 meters. We cross the dam wall and follow the asphalt bike path back north along the west bank of the Reschsee. The cycling path leads through woods and meadows with slight inclines to Reschen and there we again follow a gravel path back to the starting point.
In total there are 70 meters of altitude. Length of the tour: 15 km.
Ideal as a leisurely excursion for families or as a cycling introduction for gravel or MTB bikers. The bike path is not suitable for racing bikes because the lake circuit is only partially asphalted.
One of the most beautiful and diversified bike paths in the Alpine region.read more
